In 1979 UCL students began publishing the journal ECOS, as an outlet for challenging, independent writing on nature conservation. To mark its 40th anniversary, the British Association of Nature Conservationists (BANC) together with the UCL Conservation Society are hosting a joint event at UCL.
Our aim is to create a dialogue between 'old wisdom and new energy' - three past UCL students, matched with three current or recent UCL students, sharing their perspectives on the greatest issue of our times...the ecological and climate crisis.

The three past students will be:

  • Tony Juniper, Chair of Natural England and former Chief Exec of Friends of the Earth;

  • Stephanie Hilborne, formerly Chief Executive of The Wildlife Trusts, now newly appointed Chief Exec of Women in Sport;

  • Chris Howe, formerly Chief Exec of WWF New Zealand, now Head of Food & Landscapes at WWF UK

The three current or recent students will be:

  • Kesella Scott-Somme, Earthwatch

  • Lily Unger, PhD student UCL Geography

  • Carolyn Thompson, PhD researcher, ZSL Institute of Zoology

This will be a lively evening of debate and discussion, synthesising experience from across the decades to help chart a course for tackling the biggest challenge of our times.

*** There will be a DRINKS RECEPTION after the presentations, please bring your own MUG or CUP where possible ***
